oOoOO x Islamiq Grrrls
oOoOO & Islamiq Grrrls began working together in late 2016.
Originally writing two separate albums, they would show each
other drafts of songs when they would find themselves with
writer's block, seeking the other's advice. Eventually, it
became clear that they were working on the same album &
decided to merge the two projects.
oOoOO & Islamiq Grrrls are songwriters, producers, & multi
instrumentalists. Working strictly in the genre of emotion,
their music incorporates elements of electronic, rock, hip hop,
RnB, jazz, metal and whatever else feels right & intense to
them while putting songs together.
oOoOO released a couple EPs on Triangle Records before
founding his own Kompakt - distributed label Nihjgt Feelings
in 2013 in order to have full control of his music. Islamiq
Grrrls joined Nihjgt Feelings in 2017 when the pair began
working together on the LP called "Faminine Mystique".
oOoOO & Islamiq Grrrls wrote, performed, engineered, &
mixed the record entirely on their own. They also
photographed & designed the record's artwork, and have so
far filmed & directed two videos for it.
Michael Stasis - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Michael Stasis
Michael Stasis is a compulsive songwriter living in Philadelphia. His entirely self-recorded output has spanned the last fifteen years and boasts a variety of odd styles borrowed from his multiple lives in the Pennsylvania woods, New York City, The Bay Area and Los Angeles. Having studied film and sound at the renowned Cooper Union in Manhattan, Stasis is primarily concerned with investigating pop motifs rather than committing to a fixed persona. While this eclectic, almost academic artistic approach has led to confusion among critics, his work is always accessible and he maintains a coveted position in the pantheon of "weirdo" songwriters.

Bored by the monotheistic urges of rock 'n' roll, Stasis quietly worships Campbell's "Hero with a Thousand Faces." But it is not for lack of cohesion. To be sure (after twelve releases), behind the collection of masks is a familiar tone, humorous occult charm and limitless imagination; a palpable style emerges from his "fake pop songs," longing cinematic soundscapes and bizarre poetic exercises.
